Across the globe governments, cities, and emergency services are struggling to cope with the challenges faced by increases in population combined with a rise in urbanisation. With such social phenomena now meaning that 3.4 billion people live in urban environments, existing non integrated surveillance systems are stretched to the limit. This lack of situational awareness of common, expected and unexpected threats is leaving cities vulnerable to increases in urban crime, terrorism and natural disasters.

To counteract this, local authorities are actively procuring new technologies that efficiently acquire, analyse and disseminate real time intelligence to key stakeholders to ensure better security for city inhabitants.

This key challenge will be exclusively discussed at this global forum, enabling all who attend the opportunity to hear from successful case studies and explore all solutions available within the industry to best tackle these concerns.

Safe Cities International will cover key areas, including public safety, intelligent video surveillance and data capture, information networks and data dissemination and emergency response coordination.
